EAST TEXAS (KTRE) - A pesky, slow moving low pressure system will continue to linger across the state for one more day, keeping the wet and unsettled weather going as we head into the weekend.
Therefore, we will have one more First Alert weather day in place for Saturday, as the passing downpours could disrupt your daily routine and cause you to possibly have to alter those plans. This will be our final day of widespread cloud cover and passing showers remaining in your First Alert forecast for the foreseeable future.
With more rain falling on already saturated grounds, a Flash Flood Watch remains in effect until 7pm Saturday for Houston, Jasper, Newton, Polk, Trinity, and Tyler counties.
Most of Deep East Texas should fare pretty well in regards to the flood threat, seeing how most areas have not had any issues.
However, I have designated the area from Woodville to Jasper and points south as a high risk area for additional flooding tonight and on Saturday, since these spots have had the most rainfall the past few days. Please avoid travel through these locales, especially in and around the Kirbyville areas in southern Jasper county, as some roads still remain flooded throughout that part of the county.
By Sunday, that low pressure center will finally begin to weaken and shift south, allowing for a cool front to bring in some drier weather for the second half of your weekend.
